Biography

The Sun Never Sets On British Quartets...

...Even if, as in the case of The British Walkers, they weren't actually British. The British Walkers were, however, a kickass combination of The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Kinks fronted by a tall, lanky hellraiser named Bobbie (or Bobby) Howard (shown to the left walking the band's mascot). Bobby Poe aka The Poe Kat and Mitch Corday ... Read more in Amazon's The British Walkers Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 collection of tracks penned by the Rock 'n' Roll great. Features Diddley tracks performed by Buddy Holly, The Shadows Of Knight, Mickey & Sylvia, Delbert McClinton, The Everly Brothers and others. The CD also features a rare appearance from Iggy Pop's first band - the Iguanas - performing '(Mona) I Need You Baby'. Copious track-by-track annotation, and the inevitable wealth of illustrations make this a must for everyone remotely interested in the work of one of the true legends of the Rock 'n' Roll era. 24 tracks. Ace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Listen! July 25, 2010
By Bill T
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Didn't expect too much from this release as I already had a good chunk of the material, but was pleasantly surprised at how listenable this set is, and how well these selections work together.

Many years ago when CHESS was releasing box sets of its artists a representative behind the projects appeared on public radio. The person stated that he did not think that Bo Diddley's material was all that strong.

This CD proves otherwise. Maybe it's the Bo Diddley beat which binds the numbers together. Maybe it's Bo Diddley's spirit & sensibilities coming across through the music which make this set a cohesive one. I'm not sure.

Whatever it is, it works. And it's nice to see Bo Diddley recognized as more than a great performer.

Bo Diddley = songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mighty Bo Diddley August 21, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Excellent disc showcasing the immortal Bo Diddley's prodigious song writing ability. Some real gems on this disc. Highlights include "Bo Diddley" by Buddy Holly and "Love Is Strange" by the Everly Brothers. These Hall of Famers offer excellent takes on Bo Diddley originals. Hidden gems include "Pretty Thing" by the vastly UNDERRATED Pretty Things, "Mona" by Iggy Pop and the Iguanas and "Diddley Daddy" by the British Walkers. A must for all Bo afficianadoes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
